Nationwide struggling

After their temporary grounding last month, Nationwide Airlines are still struggling to accommodate passengers as many have lost faith in the airline.

Nationwide was grounded on the 30th November after the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) suspended its approval of the airline’s aircraft maintenance organisation and the certificates of airworthiness of its fleet of aircraft.

According to Independent Online, the CAA ruled that the airline could fly again about two weeks ago.

Rodger Whittle, the corporate quality director at Nationwide, the airline is taking strain the festive season.

“We are operating with far fewer aircraft than normal. This has obviously had huge implication…we have been inundated with calls from our clients and we can’t accommodate them,” says Whittle.

On Wednesday two Nationwide flights were cancelled in Johannesburg, but the reason for this is still unknown.
